My next gun I am looking to buy is bought. Done deal. It is a custom made reproduction of a very late 16th C. to mid 17th C. English (or Jacobean) Doglock Fishtail Musket in 20 ga.
It is my second of these, my absolute favorite blackpowder reproduction, in the collection. Reproduction isn't a great term actually -- it's not a copy of any particular model, just a custom made smoothbore made in a common style of 300 years ago. My first was ultimately fitted for an interchangeable matchlock mechanism (which this profile historically originated with), by the American gunmaker and will be left in that latter configuration once I receive this new one.
This is a fair representation of one...
